Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This issue of the Journal specifically addresses the application of social and behavioral science theory, principles, and strategies with respect to four cognate areas of research (1) enhancing assessment of COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy; (2) understanding contextual factors (personal, relational, societal, network, familial, and community influences) associated with acceptance or refusal for COVID-19 vaccination, (3) having a greater understanding of the ethical issues involved in COVID-19 vaccination, and (4) describing intervention principles and strategies that may be efficacious in promoting COVID-19 vaccine acceptance. Manuscripts that target either special interest any of these four are welcome for submission. Manuscripts will follow standard Journal peer-review practices, and those accepted for publication will appear in the special issue on Vaccination and Public Health.
